Or- I Want You To Try To Chase This Little Chicken.
Another great post as always, John! I'm re-reading The Count of Monte Cristo and I'm always stuck by how fascinating the Abbe Faria is. He saved Edmond Dantes, which in turn transformed him into The Count. But Edmond didn't follow all of the wise Abbe's advice and decided to follow a path of vengeance, which ultimately leaves him feeling hollow. A mentor is crucial and I'm grateful for everyone who has helped me along my way.
All the best!
Great read! I have always responded to the Servant Leader style of leadership and have tried to emulate it with my personal leadership style. I’ve never been for the “bootcamp” type yelling and screaming nonsense as it always comes off as fake. Be a warrior-mentor-coach-teacher.
Thanks for the shout-out, John! As a therapist and coach, I think a lot about the mentor archetype. In fact, Mentor was originally a character in the Odyssey, an older friend of Odysseus, who he leaves to look after and guide his son Telemachus when he goes off to the Trojan War.
